Here’s a young Marty Lunt (Jordan) — Erin’s maternal grandmother. Squinted eyes, toothy smile, bow in her hair — and I suspect that is her doll on the ground nearby.
The back of the photo simply says “6” — and that would fit well with her apparent age, which would make this circa 1935.
Location is a curiosity — somewhere warm, tropical — Florida? Hawaii? California?
I think the tree is likely a “pindo palm tree” — these seem to be more common in Florida — so Florida is my top guess.
As for what was going on — we might guess this was a family vacation.
- Was Marty on vacation?
- Is this in Florida?
- Did others call her Marty as a kid?
